CONCORD – This weekend, N.C. Department of Transportation contract crews will switch traffic on U.S. 29 North near N.C. 73 in Concord as part of a $13 million project to replace two bridges over Norfolk Southern Railroad.
The switch involves moving northbound traffic from its current location to a new bridge, so demolition on the existing bridge can get underway. This switch will start tonight and be completed by 6 a.m. Monday, Aug. 5.
The work depends on dry weather and will be rescheduled, if rain impedes the contractor’s progress.
Future traffic shifts will be scheduled as work progresses. The project is scheduled to wrap up in the summer of 2020.
